Can anyone help me with this??? i know this is an age old question most probably the question itself is already outta date ... but still i have this system in my hand configuring a P4-2.4B, D865GE chipset w/ AGP 4x & a DDR-1 400 x1GB that i want to complete with the best option of a graphics card that is ever produced for an AGP 4x system. Can anyone direct me to a card (even if it is unavailable now) of that era that was considered the best ever to be made for an AGP 4x? thnx in advance ... btw i want to overclock my system so it would be nice of you to prefer a card that is available for OCing to max ... and another change i am willing to make if necessary is to change the MB that can have a AGP 8x to suit best for a P4 2.4B. :)

This will run on 4x and 8x, it's a pretty overpowered card for the aging AGP interface, I believe there was a 3870 going around for a while which was similar but it's almost impossible to find. Make sure you have a semi-beefy power supply.

ATI Radeon 4670 IceQ (If it's out of stock, which it most likely is ebay I found a few).

HD3850/70 were good AGP cards. It would be dumb to buy a new motherboard to support a graphics card that's been obsolete for 10yrs.

iirc radeon 4650 or 4670s were agp cards. something like this:

I am already feeling dumb -.- ... but the main purpose is to tweak my OCing abilities with these cards and such systems ... thats why i asked this stupid question ... i only want to buy a mobo to support the best AGP 8x card there ever was ... for the sake of OCing it to max .... thnx anyway ... :)

i have a 500w PSU to support this system and i guess i won't be needing anymore juice than that ??? :/  ... btw at this point i am guessing HD 4670 is an excellent choice since everyone is suggesting it ... thnx anyway for your reply ... :)

You should note, since you are dealing with obsolete parts, you may have trouble finding these parts at a reasonable price, so you may be wrong in thinking you are practicing with throwaway cheap junk.

Just like RAM for old computers is actually much more expensive then new ram for new computers.

Maybe though you can find used stuff on ebay so you can practice on.

The 3850 agp HIS ICE Q is the best performing graphics cards for games. the 4670 agp HIS ICE Q is the second best latest AGP graphics card, and the 4670 is the only one that has an HDMI port. however the 3850 requires at least a 450 watt power supply with an 8 pin adapter while the 4670 requires 400 watt power supply that just needs a molex connection. I would know since i own both.

How and why is the 3850 better than the 4670?
